NodeBox 3

NodeBox is a new software application for creating generative art using procedural graphics and a new way to approach graphic design.


  • Node based -- the software uses a non-destructive workflow where every operation is represented by a visual block of code.
  • Open to extend -- look and change the source of every code block.
  • Python or Clojure -- Nodes can be written in popular dynamic programming languages.
